I have the best job in the world - I write books for teens. I'm a former nurse, a native New Yorker, a wife, and a mother of four. I live near Austin, Texas, with my family, and I'm currently working on my next novel.

Kayla Hi April! I just wanted to say hi. I live in the Austin area as well - you came to my school for a book signing in 2009. I won't tell you which school for security reasons, but it was a middle school. I am a huge fan!


Stephanie Hi April! Thanks for finding me here! It's always nice to connect with other authors, especially Austin area ones! I'll be looking into your books soon. :)
